After an abnormal smear I had a biopsy in June 2017 and at the end I fainted. Completly blacked out, I had no idea where I was, who the nurses were or even my name for a short time whilst coming round. I put it down to it being a hot day and I'm a bit of a wimp!
The results were CIN2 and high risk HPV. I had Letz treatment in July to which I didn't faint during this.
I had my 6 month smear in January 2018 and last week had to go back for a second biopsy as more abnormal cells detected.
At the EXACT same point of the biopsy, I fainted again! Same as before where I had no recolection of what was happening while comming round and embaressingly this time my bladder also emptied whilst I was blacked out (top tip go for a wee first!)
They said it might be a reaction to the silver nitrate as both times this is when I blacked out.
Has this happened to anyone else? Is it unusual? Could it be linked to the silver nitrate?
I'm not normally a worrier but I am now panicking about having to go back for more treatment or another biopsy.
Thank you in advance
